  Trevor Lawrence wasn't going to slow down after clinching the ACC Atlantic a week earlier. No. 3 Clemson didn't, either. Lawrence tied his career high with four touchdowns, three to Tee Higgins, and No. 3 Clemson won its 26th straight game and completed a second straight perfect Atlantic Coast Conference regular season with a 52-3 victory over Wake Forest on Saturday. Tigers coach Dabo Swinney said the team has played its best football the past six games as the postseason approaches. "It's not like we're trying to score a certain amount of points," he said. "We just let them play. We're doing the things you need to do to win a championship."

Much of that starts with Lawrence, who after a sometimes shaky start to the season has steadied himself to look like the stellar passer who led Clemson to the national title a year ago. Lawrence has thrown for 19 TDs and three interceptions in the past six games - and was front and center of Clemson's latest blowout. The Tigers (11-0, 8-0, No. 3 CFP) opened quickly and, after an uncomfortable stretch of four series with just a field goal, turned it on again right before halftime to win their 11th in a row over the Demon Deacons (7-3, 3-3). - Clemson/AP College Football

  Clemson starting receivers Justyn Ross and Amari Rodgers were hurt in the opening half of the third-ranked Tigers. game with Wake Forest on Saturday. Ross was hurt late in the second quarter and, while got up and walked to the sidelines, he appeared sluggish as he and a trainer went into the locker room. Rodgers appeared to hurt his right shoulder after a 52-yard punt return that set up Clemson's first touchdown. Rodgers came out of the medical tent stretching and rotating his right arm. Ross entered the game as Clemson's leader with 40 catches. Rodgers was third with 25 receptions. Clemson said neither player would return for the second half. The Tigers have next week off before closing the season at rival South Carolina on Nov. 30. - Clemson/AP College Football

  Praise him or criticize him, Trevor Lawrence doesn't care. Not as long as the quarterback keeps improving and No. 3 Clemson keeps winning. Lawrence and the Tigers have done plenty of both this season. "I really like the way we're playing," Lawrence said with a smile Monday. Lawrence came into the season the potential face of college football, fresh off a dominating show where he riddled Alabama in Clemson's 44-16 national championship victory in January. Several analysts even suggested Lawrence withdraw from school and spend the next two years prepping for his inevitable selection as the NFL's No. 1 pick.

Instead, Lawrence vowed to work hard and came into the season as the first-team QB on The Associated Press All-America team presented by Regions Bank, a sure-fire favorite for the Heisman Trophy. But the 6-foot-6 sophomore slumped early. Lawrence threw just four interceptions in his 15-0 freshman season, but he had five in his first five games this year. He struggled in Clemson's low point of the season, a 21-20 escape at North Carolina on Sept. 28 that grabbed everyone's attention for all the wrong reasons from Clemson's point of view. Lawrence's health was questioned, his mechanics picked apart. Critics questioned the 19-year-old's ability to make the right decisions. - AP College Football

  Trevor Lawrence said he and his Clemson teammates aren't focused on trying to make a point about their outside-looking-in position in the first College Football Playoff rankings. Maybe not, but the reigning national champion Tigers sure are playing with an overwhelming edge all the same - and that has for now at least secured their ticket to the Atlantic Coast Conference championship game. Lawrence threw for two scores and ran for another in a dominating first quarter, helping No. 4 Clemson beat North Carolina State 55-10 on Saturday night to clinch the league's Atlantic Division title. The Tigers learned this week that they were fifth in the four-team playoff rankings. Yet coach Dabo Swinney had said the Tigers (10-0, 7-0, No. 5 CFP) were in a "good spot" and needed to focus instead on finishing strong.

Since surviving a 21-20 scare at unranked North Carolina in September, the Tigers have won five straight games by 31 or more points. "I think with something like (the CFP ranking), it's hard to just avoid it and not see it and not hear any of that," Lawrence said. "But we don't really focus on it, especially now. I mean, after the 12th week or the ACC championship, that'll be important for sure then...If we don't win next week and the week after that and the week after that, it doesn't really matter about the playoff if we lose a game." Starting that way was enough against the Wolfpack (4-5, 1-4) as Clemson extended its school-record winning streak to 25 games. - Clemson/AP College Football

  Clemson gave offensive lineman John Simpson and linebacker James Skalski a chance to show off some positional versatility in this one. The Tigers' 42-0 halftime lead included 6-foot-4, 330-pound Simpson taking a goal-line handoff and plowing in for a 1-yard touchdown. "Getting in there was insane," Simpson said, adding: "It was a once-in-a-lifetime experience." And near the end of the game, after Clemson added a 1-yard scoring run with 11 seconds left, the Tigers let Skalski unsuccessfully kick the extra point. Swinney said Skalski makes kicks in practice but "all of a sudden, he got a little stage fright out there tonight." - Clemson/AP College Football

  Clemson running back Travis Etienne doesn't need many carries to put up big numbers. Etienne has gained 640 yards and six touchdowns during the Tigers' four-game romp since their open week. He's needed just 56 carries to do it, exiting games by early in the third quarter with the Tigers typically up big. - AP College Football

  Clemson coach Dabo Swinney believes it's way past time to lighten up on quarterback Trevor Lawrence. Lawrence accounted for four touchdowns, Travis Etienne ran for 212 yards in a record-setting performance and No. 4 Clemson rolled to its 24th straight victory, 59-14 over FCS opponent Wofford on Saturday. Lawrence had three TD passes for a fourth straight game, leading the Tigers to a season-high 702 yards. And Swinney things people should start focusing on that instead of finding fault in Lawrence's play. "He's had about eight bad plays and they just can't let it go," Swinney said. "They can't let it go. They can't forgive him."

Lawrence, the 6-foot-6 long-haired sophomore, gets plenty of forgiveness from his team Tiger fans. He heard outsiders pick at his career-high eight interceptions -- double what he threw during Clemson's 15-0 national championship season a year ago -- and he shrugs it off as the Tigers (9-0) keep winning. "We've used it for fuel," Lawrence said, smiling. Etienne, the reigning Atlantic Coast Conference player of the year, helped the Tigers put it away early with scoring runs of 47 and 86 yards in the first 15:12. Clemson improved to 34-0 against FCS programs. It was the Tigers' sixth straight win over Wofford (5-3), which fell to 1-21 against FBS schools. Etienne became Clemson's first rusher with three 200-yard games in his career. He also surpassed James Davis for Clemson's career record for rushing TDs with 48. Lawrence had TD passes of 35 yards to Amari Rodgers, 22 yards to Tee Higgins and 34 yards to Justyn Ross. Lawrence also rushed for a 2-yard score that put Clemson up 42-0 at the half. - Clemson/AP College Football

  Clemson starting defensive end Xavier Thomas is expected to miss a third consecutive game since suffering a concussion at practice last month. Tigers coach Dabo Swinney says Thomas has made significant progress since entering the concussion protocol before No. 4 Clemson's 45-10 victory at Louisville three weeks ago. However, the team plans to hold him out Saturday against Wofford of the Football Championship Subdivision. Thomas had started four of the team's first six games before getting hurt. The 6-foot-2, 265-pound sophomore from Florence is third on the Tigers with 4+ tackles for loss. Clemson (8-0) is looking for its 24th consecutive victory when it takes on Wofford (5-2). - AP College Football

  Diondre Overton finally got his moment. It came in Clemson's best offensive showing of the season. The reserve receiver, who had only four touchdowns in his previous three seasons, caught three scoring passes to help the fourth-ranked Tigers win their 23rd straight game, 59-7 over Boston College on Saturday night. Travis Etienne ran for three TDs as Clemson built a 38-7 by halftime on the way to their fourth 8-0 start in five seasons. And Overton, part of two Clemson national title teams, at last had a starring role. "Like I told my team, it's just been a long time coming," he said, smiling.

Overton had scoring catches of 22, 63 and 34 yards, nearly equaling his career mark coming in. He finished with a career-best 119 yards receiving as part of what Swinney said was Clemson's most complete game of the season. "I could've transferred, could've left, could've let my team down," Overton said. "But I just kept the faith." Etienne had scoring runs of 3, 4 and 5 yards as the Tigers (6-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) easily extended their program best streak. They jumped on the Eagles (4-4, 2-3) early and never let up -- Clemson had the ball six times in the first 30 minutes and scored each time. "I think the offense set the tone tonight," Swinney said. "We wanted the offense to be fast and efficient and that's what we had tonight." Trevor Lawrence completed 16 of 19 passes for 275 yards with three touchdowns. - Clemson/AP College Football
